I am a Research Associate in the Department of Mathematics in the group of Anastasia Borovykh at Imperial College London, also affiliated with Imperial-X.

Previously, I obtained my PhD in the Pure Analysis and PDEs group at Imperial College London under the supervision of Gustav Holzegel and Martin Taylor. My thesis investigated the stability and instability of extremal black holes in general relativity. I completed my MSc in Mathematics at the University of Bonn, with a thesis proving mode stability of blowup for the wave maps equation.

I was a co-organiser of the Junior Analysis Seminar with Esther Bou Dagher for the academic year 2020-2021, and with Shubham Gupta for the academic year 2021-2022.

Research Interests

Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Fluid Mechanics, Unstable and chaotic dynamical systems, Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, Mathematical Physics, Differential Geometry.
